Steven Universe Volume 1 (C) CARTOON NETWORK

Originally announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, iam8bit and Cartoon Network's Steven Universe Volume 1 vinyl set is now available for purchase. You can check out a special unboxing video via iam8bit below to see exactly what you’re getting:

The Steven Universe vinyl set includes 37 tracks across four 10" translucent records. Each record represents a Crystal Gem, with Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl and Steven each getting their colored disc. The soundtrack was released globally last year.

“Steven Universe Vol. 1 is a one-of-a-kind animated opus, fusing musical celebration with storytelling in a way that inspires nothing short of spectacular smiling. Its songs are lively, jubilant and often emotional works of aural art, spreading a sensation of total glee to all ears within listening distance,” reads the official product description.

It’s hard to fight that take when so many of Steven Universe ’s songs are total earworms or soaring expressions of emotion, from Garnet’s “Stronger Than You” to Pearl’s heartbreaking “It’s Over Isn’t It.” Lighthearted fare is included as well, such as “Cookie Cat” and “Big Fat Zucchini.”

The 4-disc vinyl set was designed in close collaboration with series creator Rebecca Sugar as well as illustration artists Chromosphere. The inset features art of the Crystal Gems trekking across a stylized landscape.

In a press release, showrunner and creator Rebecca Sugar said, “I am so excited about this album that I hardly have the words. We poured our hearts into these songs and now they’re finally collected and stunningly re-mastered by our composers Aivi & Surrasshu.”

“I can not say enough about how much I love each of these tracks! But I can say that this is the best they’ve ever sounded! Please blast them! Please sing along! That’s what these are for! If the music of Steven Universe has been a tiny piece of the score of your life, please know that I am so honored,” Sugar continued. “I hope you’ll love this album as much as we loved making it.”

The 4-disc set is now available on iam8bit.com for $49.99. For more soundtrack magic, you can get a look at some of Sugar’s behind-the-scenes thoughts about closing track “Love Like You” via an io9 video exclusive here.

In other news, the complete first season is now available on DVD for the first time (Amazon). There’s also a new children’s book, “Fusion For Beginners and Experts,” available as well (Amazon).
